Bauble with gilding flakes


Hi everyone, I was inspired by a few challenges making this card, but some of them have closed.
Where does the time go?!!

I applied some wide double sided adhesive tape to cardstock then added some gilding flakes to it, before diecutting the ornament.
Love the mix of colours in this one and how it pops against the black.

The bow was diecut from black card, inked with versamark and clear embossed for shine.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday, sparkle and shine
I've used the Poppystamps dies Tinsel and Brittany ornaments
